The thing that puts me off
I feel LL would be a good idea for me, but the thing that puts me off is having to get my blood pressure checked and signed by my GP each week/month.
I know it should not put me off, but it does!
Is there any way round this for me?

Change your GP? Seriously if it's a huge problem maybe the diet isn't the issue but your relationship with the GP is.
You can get a medical person (nurse etc) to do this for you I think.
you can go to the pharmacy and get them to do a BP check and stamp your book... this is perfectly ok... don't know if this helps? it is only once a month (you do have to get the doc to fill ya form in though)

Lloyd's and Coop pharmacies both do it in our town, I am sure you will find a few in your area.

I am fine with the GP, it's just the whole thing of having to get BP done at all, when other diets dont need it.
Has anyone been refused by their GP?
I think it's very important to go. That was one of the things that made feel more comfortable about doing this. This is a pretty hardcore diet, and it could perhaps have an affect on some peple that my not be positive - so important to be monitored to make sure your body is not having any ill effects.
Why is it you do not want to face your BP? Are you worried? Other diets probably don't need it because you are usually eating conventional food I would guess, so less shock on the system and stuff like that? I don't know if CD requires it, but I am happy to do it.
Hope you don't let that stop you Louise - its so worth it!! x
Louise, LL is life changing; I wouldn't let anything put you off.....good luck!
6 stone lost over 20 weeks strict SSing in 2007 and maintaining on low GI
cd doesnt require it as such ( thats why we have aamw ) but i go to my gp every 4 weeks to be checked so i dont do aamw
my diary: myweird ramblings
lose a stone - done
lose 10% body weight - done
get under bmi 50 - done
get under bmi 40
get under bmi 30
reach a healthy bmi the jump is so frightening between where i am and where i want to be....... because of all i may become i will close my eyes and leap.
keep in mind that doing LL will help ur BP to drop, which is just another added bonus of a VLCD such as LL or CD!
add a meal week
blood pressure is important whilst doing a vlcd, as has already been stated your surgery nurse or certain chemists can do it for you.
